Getting to Peisey-Vallandry from Geneva

Our transfer driver meets you in the Geneva airport arrivals area situated in terminal 1, the Swiss side of the airport.

We follow the A41 towards Annecy, then drive around the proximity of Lac d'Annecy (Annecy Lake). This is a very picturesque part of the journey, if you are lucky enough to be travelling in the day time. The mountains rise up from behind the lake as we drive, so you will start to feel that you are close to the Alps.

After Annecy we pass the city of Albertville on the motorway. Then the small towns of Moûtiers and Aime. Just after the turn for La Plagne we take a right, heading up the mountain to Peisey-Vallandry itself.

The route is a different route from that of Les Arcs, we drive up the other side of the mountains. Heading towards Peisey village you can see the Vanoise Express running overhead.

From the main road the drive is only 15 minutes before you get to Peisey village. Then another 15 minutes until you reach Vallandry and Plan-Peisey.

When travelling on a Saturday we recommend flying to Geneva in the early hours of the morning. This helps to avoid the traffic build up that often occurs later on a Saturday.

On your return journey, we will departure from Peisey-Vallandry around 5 hours before your flight is due to take off. This is subject to change on busier Saturdays of the season.
